Beltway Insanity, by Ed Bender

Dear Editor,

My Knights of Columbus council volunteers to work at the Kennedy House soup kitchen to feed the homeless.  At our meeting last night we were informed that anyone who volunteers there must now watch a government video detailing how not to be unkind to the homeless, and sign a roster signifying that this has been done.

What resulted in this decision?  Was there a sudden outbreak of unkindness to the homeless at Kennedy House?  No, actually just showing up to work there is an act of kindness toward the homeless.
It turns out that the federal government subsidizes Berks County’s food bank.  The nuns of Kennedy House receive food for the homeless and poor from the food bank.  And, wherever there is federal money, there are strings attached.  I assume that this means that the nuns and the wives and children of the Knights will be required to watch the video, too.
This is almost as dumb as the “gun free zones” around our schools, which create a welcoming, target-rich environment for anyone with a gun who wants to kill school students.
